I had 2 bettas. 1 died today. The other, a female, is living in a temporary tank until I could get a new one. it is a large tank/bowl. Very roomy for a smalll female.
I thought that I could reuse the dead betta's tank if I clean everything out and get new water. But I was reading a little into pop eye, the disease that my betta died of, and it could be a sign of a deadly, but rare, disease. Tuberculosis. if John, the deceased, did have tuberculosis, I can't reuse the tank.
1- could I reuse the 1.5 gallon tank for my female?
2- did John have tuberculosis or just popeye?
3- is that bit about tuberculosis and not being able to reuse the tank true?
